There's something about the new guy at Crossroads High…Most sixteen-year-olds have friends.Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:One can time travel.One can raise the dead.One can possess another human.One can tell the future.Everyone thinks he's crazy, which is why he's spent his entire life shuffled between mental institutions and juvie. All of that is about to change, however. For months Aden has been having visions of a beautiful girl—a girl who carries centuries-old secrets. A girl who will either save him or destroy him.Together they'll enter a dark world of intrigue and danger…but not everyone will come out alive.
Aden Stone is the boy nobody wanted. Because he talks to himself, he was diagnosed as a schizo! For that reason more than anything else, he has been passed around between institutions, psychologist and halfway houses his entire life.  Aden, the sixteen year old isn’t really sick. On the contrary, Aden has four souls trapped inside of him and they keep up a steady torrent of chatter in his head! From passing commentary Advice, knowledge and rebuke on every last aspect of his existence! They talk in his head insistently!
Crossroads Oklahoma, Aden’s current residence, the D&M ranch to be précised is a halfway house for trouble, wayward kids… this however, is Aden’s last chance to prove himself as a star… ah kid? Person? Sure whichever! He has to comply with the strict rules at D & M Ranch and he has to avoid trouble. That. Could be a problem as always, because the undead souls in his head can raise the dead, predicts the death of others; transport Aden through time or into another person's body. Naturally, four souls spells quadruple the trouble!
Having spent his whole life alone and without friends to call his own, Aden is delighted to meet Mary Ann, an introverted, scholarly girl who calms the voices in his head and accepts Aden for who he is.  Aden soon finds out that his abilities are like a beckon for all supernatural and that he is a supernatural crowd-puller!
A vampire princess Victoria is one of the sup he’d drawn to Oklahoma and she is literally the girl of his dreams! But every love story what telling must go through turmoil or chaos or both.  This book is the opening of an exciting young adult series that introduces us to a complex and darkly intriguing world of vampires, demons, shape shifters, witches and undead souls. I was captivated. I loved everything about this book! I literally could not put it down until I finished it! I was dismayed to find out that I have to wait for a year for the sequel!!! In this book I didn’t have to go through whom to pick or which lover suits the hero kind of   drama!!! Instead the paired lover where paired brilliantly. I have always like Gena’s mind and the way she writes, but she always astonishes me on how she can make me laugh and cry all in one read… and hunger for more good books! She paves the way for writers She is a beacon amongst writers and her name will be remembered for a long time!!!








Title: Unraveled
Author: Gena Showalter                                                     
Series: Intertwined # 2
Publisher: HQN
Hardcover: 572
Publication Date: August 31st 2010
 Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he's supposed to be crowned Vampire King—while still a human! Well, kind of.With four—oops, three now—human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been "different" himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another's mind and, his least favorite these days, and tell the future.The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn't about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life….
I was excited about this new series and I anxiously waited for the sequel. With a great deal of anticipation, I couldn’t stop wondering what would happen next! In this continuation, Aden is recovering from the battle that resulted in the death of Dimitri, the fiancé of his Vampire Princess girlfriend, Victoria. Dimitri, in a struggle for power-killed Victoria's father (Vlad) hoping to be crowned the "King" of the Vampires. Having killed Dimitri, Aden has become the reluctant human Vamp soon to be King! Also there is the case of the witches, from book one and their threats! They’d cursed him and his friends (Riley, Mary Ann & Victoria) to die unless they attend an upcoming witches meeting. While the four struggle to break the curse, Aden realizes they he might have the “mojo” the be a vamp king after all, seeing how the vamp beast reacts to Aden’s presence and touch! Main while, Mary Ann, Aden’s best friend has a problem of her own, she hasn’t eaten in days and seems to now be able to "drain" people of their powers. Riley becomes even more protective of Mary Ann and fears that she is becoming something that can destroy them all.  Aden had a lot to deal with in the book, new kingly and his pending death (curse) should be foremost on his mind yet, he has to worry about school; keeping up with appearances around the D&M Ranch; juggling his 3 remaining souls (Caleb...who can possess people; Elijah.... predicts the future.... Julian...raises the dead); watching out for goblins that are hiding in the woods; and dealing with angry faeries. This book has a lot of drama, but it was captivating nonetheless. I like Gena’s work, but I think this book was a bit complicated and it wasn’t as good as the first installment. This book was a mixture of an intense love, mystery, thriller and humor… it was invigorating and the cliffhanger was mind shattering!!! I mean I can't wait to see how it plays out and how Gena Showalter is going to finish this series!!!! The ending was WOW! I didn’t see that. One. Happening.  Jaw Dropping!!!!! 



 




Title: Twisted
Author: Gena Showalter                                                     
Series: Intertwined # 4
Publisher: HQN
Hardcover: 564
Publication Date: August 30th 2011
 SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD ADEN STONE HAS HAD A HELL OF A WEEK. HE’S BEEN:Tortured by angry witches.
Hypnotized by a vengeful faery.
Spied on by the most powerful vampire in existence.
And, oh, yeah. Killed – twice.
His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he’s never felt more out of control. There’s a darkness within him, something taking over . . . changing him. Worse, because he was meant to die, death now stalks him at every turn. Any day could be his last.
Once upon a time, the three souls trapped inside his head could have helped him. He could have protected himself. But as the darkness grows stronger, the souls grow weaker – just like his girlfriend. The more vampire Aden becomes, the more human Victoria becomes, until everything they know and love is threatened.
Life couldn’t get any worse. Could it?
